Node.js is available from the NodeSource Debian and Ubuntu binary distributions repository (formerly Chris Lea’s Launchpad PPA). Support for this repository, along with its scripts, can be found on GitHub at nodesource/distributions.

NOTE: If you are using Ubuntu Precise or Debian Wheezy, you might want to read about running Node.js >= 6.x on older distros.

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

Alternatively, for Node.js 9:

curl -sL | sudo -E bash -
sudo apt-get install -y nodejs

Optional: install build tools

To compile and install native addons from npm you may also need to install build tools:

sudo apt-get install -y build-essential
